Mona Lisa Project: Parts 3 and 4

Hello all!

Life has been more then a little busy so blogging has been pushed to the back, which is pretty much the norm it would seem. 🙂  I wanted to take a little time though, to post part 3 and 4 of the Mona Lisa Project (by Live Action Films).

As you may recall, I posted the first two of five installments (videos) of the Mona Lisa project in an earlier post.   The two I am posting now are parts 3 and 4, with the fifth to come soon.

Parts 3 and 4 follow much the same line as 1 and 2 in the manner that the investigation is conducted and events unfold, so it might seem pointless to watch them; but I believe it is important nonetheless to inform ourselves as much as is reasonably possible.  I don’t think people realize the deep dishonesty and lack of ethics that is so habitual of organizations like Planned Parenthood.   These videos are invaluable in understanding these things.

As with parts 1 and 2, I have purposely imbedded the videos in the blog (as opposed to simply linking them) for your convenience and warn you that some of the “related videos” on youtube are quite perverse, so I would recommend that you don’t view them on youtube.   Also be warned that these videos may not be for younger viewers.

 

Part 3: Tucson, Arizona Planned Parenthood

Part 4: Phoenix, Arizona Planned Parenthood

Abortion Quotes and 4D

Hey all!

I am taking the liberty of grabbing more of Nicole’s work and posting it here (referrencing the previous post).   It is a compilation of quotes that shed light on the humanity of a fetus through the use of 4D technology, an important point for pro-life advocates to establish.  

I hope you find them informative. 🙂

 

“By midpregnancy the fetus has begun to explore its own body and environment using its hands. It often holds on to the umbilical cord, and when a thumb approaches its mouth, it will turn and begin to make sucking motions with its lips… The fetus is also using its sense of hearing for orientation. Its most familiar sounds are surely the noises of the mother’s digestive system and the swishing from her major blood vessels, but gradually the fetus also begins to perceive the sounds of the mother’s world, such as music and the father’s voice. The eyes of the fetus are sensitive to light, even though the eyelids are still shut tight…”

-Lennart Nilsson and Lars Hamberger, A Child is Born, 4th edition. New York: Bantum Dell, 2003. p. 141

“Does a fetus see anything? It is known that the eye can sense light as early as the third month of pregnancy. Sometimes when an endoscope is inserted into the amniotic sac, a fetus tries to protect its eyes from the light on the instrument, either by turning away or by using its hands and fingers.”

-Lennart Nilsson and Lars Hamberger, A Child is Born, 4th edition. New York: Bantum Dell, 2003. p. 146

“During her odyssey in the womb [a fetus] will smile, recognize her mother’s voice and maybe even dream.”

-In the Womb, National Geographic, 2005

“One of the many things revealed by the 4D scans is the fact that babies have rapid eye movement sleep. This is a period of sleep when the eyes slicker around behind the eyelids. Later in life, this is an indication of dreaming. This gentle flicker of an eye could be a sign that the fetus, still with a month to go before being born is already dreaming.”

-In the Womb, National Geographic, 2005

“Twins, and other multiples, are known for a particular characteristic in utero. Scientists have even witnessed them playing games together… Scientists think their prenatal behavior [carries] over into early childhood.”

-In the Womb, National Geographic, 2005

“In the top drawer of my desk, I keep [a picture of my son]. This picture was taken on September 7, 1993, 24 weeks before he was born. The sonogram image is murky, but it reveals clear enough a small head tilted back slightly, and an arm raised up and bent, with the hand pointing back toward the face and the thumb extended out toward the mouth. There is no doubt in my mind that this picture, too, shows [my son] at a very early stage in his physical development. And there is no question that the position I defend in this book entails that it would have been morally permissible to end his life at this point.”
-David Noonin, “A Defense of Abortion”

“Never, never will we desist till we . . . extinguish every trace of this bloody traffic, of which our posterity, looking back to the history of these enlightened times will scarce believe that it has been suffered to exist so long a disgrace and dishonor to this country.”

-William Wilberforce

“When my wife and I visited the Yad Vashim Holocaust Memorial in Jerusalem, we were most deeply touched by the children’s memorial. It has 1500 candles, with mirrors designed to reflect each candle a thousand times, representing the 1.5 million children killed in the Holocaust. We stood in the darkness hearing the names of individual children read one by one.
I was struck by the number, because at the time it was the same number killed by abortion in America each of the previous few years. The fact that most of these children haven’t been given names doesn’t diminish their worth. I have stood at memorials for the unborn where parents have given names to their children and written them in expressions of love and grief. If we could only hear the names of each of these children whispered to us in the dark, perhaps we would wake up.”

-Randy Alcorn, ProLife Answers to ProChoice Arguments. p. 301

Learn about and fight FOCA

Hello all!

Most of those reading this post have probably heard of FOCA, otherwise known as the Freedom of Choice Act, but some of you might not have and for those of you who know of it is possible you don’t know much about it.   For those who support life it is important to A) know the details of FOCA, and B) take such action against it as you can.   With that in mind, I have permission to share a post written by Nicole, an aquaintence from a forum we are both members of.   She did all the work collecting links and writing the post, then graciously granted me permission to use her work.  

Many thanks to Nicole for her passion and hard work!

Here is the info:

“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”
-Romans 12:21

“Nothing is inevitable. We can’t give up, we must never quit.

America is worth fighting for.”
-John McCain

Hey everyone!

I’m working on a campaign to fight the Freedom of Choice Act and I’d like to ask you all to join me. Obama is not going to hesitate to enact what he believes is “right” for this country. Thus I believe we cannot hesitate to stand for what we know is right.

If we wait until the Freedom of Choice Act is reintroduced to oppose it, I believe it will be too late. Many people know it is coming. And I believe they are already making up their minds. It will be very hard to convince those who are pro-choice if we wait until then to present the truth of the danger this bill will pose to what they really want for this country. In fact, it will be nearly impossible. But if we start now, I believe it is easily possible to turn even them against it.

Many who are pro-life still do not know the full truth of what this bill could accomplish. I didn’t until I spent several days compiling the facts. It is important that everyone who is pro-life knows the facts about this bill. For only when we know, can we begin to fully fight. And once the facts of this bill are known, I can hardly imagine how someone could not fight it.

I created this flier (link below) to spread the word about FOCA. It’s a great way to get all the facts quickly and to pass them on effectively and efficiently. This is something we can include with letters that explain our position, hand to friends, leave on cars and at bus stops, and most importantly encourage people to also make copies of and distribute.

What follows is an incomplete list of resources for further research, ideas for action, and contact information I believe would be helpful. I will be adding to this post in the future as I gather more information. I welcome your input — please let me know if there is any suggestions, ideas, resources, and contact info you can contribute.

Join me, will you?

Ideas:

1.) Please be sure to sign the petition — and encourage everyone you know to do the same: http://www.fightfoca.com/ This petition will be sent to key Members of Congress upon the re-introduction of the Freedom of Choice Act in the 111th Congress, and to President-Elect Obama.

2.) Send letters (let me know if you’d like some sample letters) to doctors, hospitals, newspapers, newspeople, congressmen, senators, pastors, and friends. Include the flier.

3.) Have a letter writing party at your home or church — get together with your friends, student group, book club, Bible study group, or members of your church to collaborate on the project and get more people involved.

4.) Invite people to join The Rebelution forums or let me know if you’d like to start a new branch of this initiative at another forum (I’d like to be able to post a link to what you’re doing and keep track of the progress made).

5.) Start a petition in your state to send to your congressman/senator — take clipboards to hospitals, churches, religious conferences in your town, etc.

6.) Copy and distribute the flier — hand them out, ask to leave a stack of them at hospitals, crisis pregnancy centers, churches, insert them in church bulletins, post them on bulletin boards, leave them on benches, on cars in parking lots, at bus stops, newspaper and real estate guide stands on corners, sitting areas in malls or elsewhere, at people’s doors… leave them, post them, get them anyplace you can think of! Throw them off rooftops and into the street! Just hand them to five friends — or five people each week. Awareness is key.

God bless you all!

As Nicole said, it’s important that we don’t allow this to sneak up on us.   Once you reach the point of decision you are basically stuck with what you’ve got.   Then the time for changing hearts and minds, as well as mobilizing those already of likeminds, will be past.
